Shoden and Okuden

July 1, 2018

I decided to revisit Reiki after many years of not being ‘truly’ engaged with it. I was searching for a Reiki Master that would offer much more than ‘just a 2 day class’. I was seeking an aide or place to help pick up my journey with reiki / continue the spiritual path, and found a place to practice, find peace, new tools, to go deeper. I’m very happy to have found a teacher and supportive students to complement, examine and build on the foundations laid some time ago. In Simon and Navitas, I’ve found a perfect place/partnership to continue my journey and for that, I am truly grateful. Thank you ??

Okuden training. June 2018

June 17, 2018

I have just completed the Okuden course and like the Shoden it is difficult to describe the positive impact that they have had on me. Both courses were truly amazing. The mix of practitioners like myself were a vital and supportive element to the training and Simon was able to bring us all together as a powerful unit, just amazing. Simon has a genuineness and compassion that makes the course so amazing; it is together with his knowledge and experience that Reiki teachings have been opened up to me. Amazing. I don’t know whether I have said enough ‘amazing,s’? I have also attended one of the many monthly meets for practitioners and such was equally amazing, not knowing anybody does not matter because the environment is made safe by the kindness and generosity of practitioners and Simon and is emmensly helpful to support practice.Oh yes I can’t forget the amazing treats that Kate provides All in all I would wholeheartedly recommend the Navitas Centre

I have been living and reflecting all week and could not put into words how I truly felt until this moment. I have spent many wonderful times with amazing souls on the Reiki courses that Simon gifts and shares his unconditional wisdom with us all. If I am sharing how amazing the wisdom and teachings that I experience when I am in the presence of Simon I always from the bottom of my heart will say “Simon is off this world but he is not from this world” It is impossible for me to really describe the insight and higher awareness gifted to me on the three day residential Reiki Retreat as it truly was “out of this world” and to intellectualise and try and share is very difficult for me to explain. I can whole heartedly share that the experiences through the wisdom and meditation practices that I experienced over the three days has changed my life, my world and my truth. To say it was one of the most challenging roller coaster rides of my life would be an understatement!! To say I experienced an emotional desire to hold onto old believes, thoughts and feelings I had created all my life as the truth was challenging to say the least!! and you may feel the energy and the emotions of change as I am writing my feelings to share. For me It was the most lonely and challenging experience to be taken into a space and energy that truly challenged my EGO as I had to come to terms with “who am I”. When you connect on a consciousness that feels naked you feel incredibly vulnerable and from that state of consciousness an awakening from within shines through like a flower budding for the first time. It is the most magnificent experience to connect with your truth. As a child we live in every waking moment with an open heart, we do not judge and question vulnerability and fear as we rejoice with an inner knowing and open heart that we are truly here to experience love. This is how I felt for three life changing days with Simon and 21 amazing and beautiful souls who unconditionally created a space and energy for me to experience the divine gift of acceptance and unconditional love. I will treasure every waking moment for the freedom to choose the energy and space that I create that I know maybe invisible to the eye but with an inner knowing that with love it has no boundaries as the universe serves me. I am feeling so incredibly blessed and I cannot wait for the next residential Reiki Retreat. Thank you Simon for “being you” x


Inner Light Retreat

My heart is filled with joy and gratitude that I took the opportunity to travel from Cambridge to Cheshire to join you all. At the time I booked I had no notion on a mind level why I was attending but clearly my inner being knew exactly why. I struggled on the first day but the second day of the retreat has changed my life, I am eternally grateful. Special thanks to the incredible Simon for just being.

Wow. One of the best courses I have ever attended. I have know Simon for a few years now, eve since I went to study Shoden with him. That let me to study Okuden ad other Reiki courses like “The Inner Creator”. Let me say that was the best decision I have ever made. All that has let me to study Shinpiden, and that was the icing on the cake. He really is one of the best teachers out there, because he teacher from experience and from a place of love and honesty, no judgement. I can wholehearted say that if you want to study any of the courses he offers go for it. He really is very very good in what he does.

I’m not sure I can find the right words to describe my experience of Simon’s Shinpiden course but I can say that studying with Simon was the best decision I could of made. Simon attracts students who genuinely want to learn together and support each other along the path. The whole experience has been just what I’ve needed at this moment in time. I feel inspired to continue my practise and look forward to returning to further my studies. ?


4 Day Shinpiden (Mystery Teachings) Course at Navitas

February 27, 2018

It’s hard to really know where to start, to express the gratitude and appreciation that I feel for having been given the opportunity to spend 4 incredible days training at Shinpiden (3rd degree) with Simon at the Navitas Centre. The experience gained on every level is hard to put into words, as you kind of had to be there! Energy work is not something you can really understand until you have experienced it, and when you have a collective energy, lead by a teacher with such an incredible understanding, personal experience, expertise and kindness, like Simon does, well the experience can be just ‘Out of this World’. My utmost thanks also to the incredible lovely ladies and one lovely gentleman, that also shared in these 4 wonderful days. Thank you all for making me feel so welcome and at home. So, if you are reading this and considering Reiki training at Navitas … then don’t let it pass you by, listen and trust in You, as it will very likely be one of the best decisions you could make for yourself and your loved ones.Love and Light, Natalie Mitchell (Reiki Teacher – Relax and Heal with Reiki) Xxx

Simon is the embodiment of truth and even to be in his presence has a calming and grounding effect like “coming home”. The teachings he shares are simple yet deeply profound and life-enhancing. He offers navigational tools to guide you into your own inner space on a journey of self-exploration. In truth he “tells” you nothing but merely nurtures your own remembering of Self. This is the mark of a great teacher indeed. Navitas is a lighthouse for anyone seeking deeper meaning in life. If you are drawn to the light then these courses are for you.

Strongly advise to book the course

November 6, 2017

The course content is fantastic. I experienced things that totally expanded my mind and yet consolidated things that I have read about for a long time. It was great to hear the other individuals unique experiences. This course has reinforced my journey, and I have no doubt in my heart that I will utilise this gift for the benefit of not only myself but for all sentient beings. I left feeling empowered, and now I feel connected to the source and appreciate things on a greater level. I am thankful for so much, and this course really has helped me consolidate my learning, beliefs and practices. If part of you is resisting, let go and book; it will change your being. Simon is fantastic and a great teacher, I can’t even write how highly I recommend him to guide you.
